The veteran ex-Leone Stars captain together with Kenny Beaney were at their best, as they helped the non-league side took control and dictating the flow of the ball in their goalless draw against Braintree Town in the FA Trophy clash on Saturday.

Kargbo who is suspended from Sierra Leone national team over allegations of match-fixing continued to ply his trade in the English lower league.
